Hurricane Matthew (2016)

Editor's note: Hurricane Matthew, which was upgraded to a Category 3 storm earlier today, is a 'notably strong' hurricane, notes the Washington Post. The last storm to reach this intensity in the eastern Caribbean, the paper says, was Omar in October 2008. Forecasts suggest the greatest probability of the storm's path is that it will pass east of Florida. - Tom
